Within the framework of the service, TransContainer provides flatcars, renders services on cargo delivery by railway to the border-crossing point, as well as transshipment onto wagons of Chinese gauge.
TransContainer arranges coal transportation as part of its own initiative to expand the range of cargo transported in containers. In 2021, the company shipped 6.8 thousand TEUs using such technology, in 2022 - almost 7 thousand TEUs.
Transportation of coal in containers along overland route is more technological and rhythmic, it eliminates the necessity to transship bulk cargo into "narrow gauge" wagons at the border. This is especially relevant in low temperature conditions, when solid fuel freezes up in the rolling stock, due to which it may stand idle for several days, thus reducing transit capacity of the border-crossing point with maximum load. < Back to list
